June 26, Colombo: Restaurant owners have decided to increase the price of a packet of rice and other food items by 10 percent due to the increase in fuel prices. Accordingly, the prices of short eats, kottu, and rice packets will be increased by 10% from today (26).

Asela Sampath, the chairman of the All Ceylon Restaurant Owners’ Association says the decision was taken to increase the prices of rice packets & all other food items by 10% due to the rising prices of raw food items.

He said that if the government provides some relief to restaurant owners, action could be taken to reduce food prices.

The price hike comes hours after Sri Lanka increased fuel prices, again.
